Civil and Criminal Appeals

When it comes time for an appeal, The Pettit Law offers a broad range of experience and knowledge.  As a former justice on the Dallas Court of Appeals, Craig Stoddart understands the appellate process and knows what it takes to be successful on appeal.  His unique insight and practical perspective are integral additions to the appellate practice at The Pettit Law Firm.


The Pettit Law Firm handles appeals throughout Texas. Additionally, we actively participate at the trial court level—consulting on potential appellate issues and error preservation, drafting and arguing jury charges, drafting post-judgment motions, and seeking emergency appellate relief.


Collectively, the attorneys at The Pettit Law Firm have a proven appellate track record in the following areas:


  • Business disputes;

  • Real estate litigation;

  • Texas Public Information Act;

  • Litigation against public universities;

  • Government and regulation;

  • Lender liability litigation;

  • Complex criminal appeals;

  • Post-conviction writs; and

  • Petitions for discretionary review.
